Trick or Trait

This first monograph of the work of young Dutch sculptor Maartje Fokeringa proves a lively cut-and-paste sourcebook of the artist’s colorful explorations of popular culture. Her unusual artistic practice is couched in the relationship between our personal belongings and our perception of self in society. She creates large figurative sculptures representing complex characters inspired by people she meets and observes in everyday life. Her overscaled human forms are significant for the accessories that adorn them and the gallery walls. From ornamental figurines to abstracted jewelry to paint-splattered biomorphic forms, Fokeringa is concerned with the use and exchange of objects as forms of nonverbal communication—totems signaling status, class and value. This exhibition catalog contains early work, as well as the new sculptures fabricated during a residency at the Beeldenstorm foundry in Eindhoven and later installed in the workspace at Onomatopee.

A collection of texts by a group of international art superstars comments on an extraordinary exhibition of mostly film and video works exploring the “supposed opposition of seeing and not-seeing.” Leading the investigation is artist Javier Tellez references a classic text on blindness (Diderot’s Letter on the Blind, for the Use of Those Who See), and juxtaposes it with the story of the blind men and the elephant, which insists that perception always depends on a particular point of view. Includes works by John Baldessari on the pure tension of thermometry, Harun Farocki on acute pain and Luc Teymans on eloquently simple, painterly shadows. This series of short texts creates a retrospective, photographic march through the exhibition, and a learned as well as entertaining explanation of the phenomenon by Lambert Wiesinger.

Beate Ermacora, Lotte Dinse & Jürgen Tabor (Eds.)

The foreign in the familiar, the familiar in the foreign—a poignant document of the international group exhibition is concerned with the phenomenon of the alien within one’s own culture and sphere of experience. This play on the foreign inspires many artists to confront the unfamiliar and to challenge the rules and codes of conduct within different social groups as well as research the historic transformation of public space. The resulting works, which uncover a panoramic complexity of identities and approaches, trace out aspects of society that are hidden and suppressed, raising questions about accepted social, cultural and political principles and interactions. Featured are works by 14 artists, including Martin Brand, Mark Dion, Coco Fusco, Sofia Hultén, Peter Piller, Gillian Wearing and Tobias Zielony. Essays by exhibition curators Lotte Dinse and Jürgen Tabor, along with Julia Brennacher, Andrea Brockmann, Beate Ermacora and others.

Twelve Lead Paintings 1989

Günther Förg’s beautifully produced, limited-edition book features twelve large-format lead paintings from 1989. The oversized trim size and high quality photographic reproductions convey an immediate and visceral impression of the paintings at scale. Like his contemporary and onetime collaborator Blinky Palermo, Förg dedicated himself to combining traditions of American Minimalism with a rigorous conceptual and even mystical underpinning. Förg’s thinly painted wooden surfaces and cloudy, layered palette have an enigmatic appeal, seemingly organic yet countered by the painterly application of his strict geometric figurations. In the words of fellow artist Max Weschler, “The special color of the lead […] oscillating between iridescent gray and blue, seems like a darkly threatening storm with its infinite gradations of gloom that coalesces in a fine play upon natural and artificial patinas.” Contributing essays by Britta Schröder and Max Wechsler.
